plans out there this week with a one tosomething and each offend someone. how about paul ryan? >> thankfully the american people have made it clear that they reject paul ryan's approach, and house republican'' brazen attempt to balance the budget on the backs of seniors. >> the election did not go our way -- believe me, i know what that feels like it does that mean we surrender our principles? forhe plan would cut taxes everybody and eventually replace medicare with a voucher plan, cut medicaid by over $700 billion in 10 years. do the democrats have a better idea, mark? >> the democrats have a better idea by basically not letting anything compete in the spotlight with paul ryan's. numbersho looks at believe that you can cut the deficit in 10 years while simultaneously increasing defense spending and cutting 35 to 28, as from mitt romney proposed, but 39 to 25%. it is just a pipe dream. >> are we ever going to settle this thing, lois? >> and then we might. i think the charm offensive is working a little bit. mitch mcconnell is speaking well of the president in saying that we ha
in washington kentucky senator rand paul has spent 2013 raising his national profile. first it was the 13-hour filibuster. then a big cpac speech that helped deliver a straw poll victory. and today senator paul is wading into the immigration debate in a big way. putting his support behind a path to legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. joining me now for the daily fix, chris cillizza, msnbc contributor. and managing editor of postpolitics.com and charlie cook, msnbc political analyst and founder of the cook political report. and charlie, i'll go to you first, we'll get chris to chime in on this. i was taken aback that rand paul went out on this limb to a degree, because he was really setting himself up as the right-wing presidential candidate. this separate 0ing up a flag on the immigration front. that someone like a tom tancredo did in 2008, could exploit rand paul if they wanted to. >> it could, but i'm looking at it on the first level, is that this is a remarkable speech. here we have the person who has become pretty much the most important tea party figure in the entire country.
. and after finishing first and second in the cpac shuffle, senators rand paul and marco rubio continued to jockey for the spotlight. paul threw his support mostly behind comprehensive immigration reform as he and rubio each did their best not to get ahead of each other on what the path to legalization might look like. [ speaking in foreign language ] i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrant. >> we aren't going to deport 12 million people like rand paul said today or give blanket amnesty or a special pathway to citizenship. what i've never been for is a special pathway to citizenship. >> i'm simply saying you can get a work visa and get in the normal line. >> the idle republican party announced rand paul will headline their annual fundraiser next month. rick santorum and wisconsin governor scott walker will also be in the hawkeye state in coming weeks. we also learned marco rubio's pac spent a hundred thousand dollars on campaign consultants just last month. new jersey governor chris christie says ohio senator ro
. the document itself has all of the content of a paul ryan budget. >> to reveal health care reform? >> exactly, but keep the money. we'll be back right after this, and we'll talk about the rape trial verdict that came down over -- stew benville and the amazing concepts that went with that. we'll talk about it after the break, and it points to the very problem of reporting and prosecuting rape in this country and the public response to it when it's a certain type of defendant, and it's right in line with where women are finding themselves in the electorate. you are listening to the "stephanie miller show," and watching it on current tv. i'm hal sparks filling in with jacki schechner all week long. we'll be back right after this. >> announcer: it's the "stephanie miller show." >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the day. >> has the time finally come for real immigration reform? >> with a distinctly satirical point of view. if you believe in state's rights but still believe in the drug war you must be high. >> only on current tv. ♪ >> hal: welcome back to the "stephani
republicans also voted today again for the paul ryan budget. democrats are very excited about that because they plan to use that vote against republicans in campaign ads for the next election. we have the one and only ezra klein here momentarily to sort out what's important about what they just voted on in congress and whether we just avoided one of the cliff slash ceilings clash crisis congress now schedules for us every few weeks and whether the way they avoided this next one is itself important. there's a lot going on in the news. we have a lot ahead. we begin tonight with late breaking and rather surprising news from the democratic leader in the senate, senator harry reid. following two days of angry response from california senator dianne feinstein, she had been very publicly disappointed and angry harry reid was not going move her assault weapons ban to the senate floor as part of the democrats gun reform package. after two days of defiant reaction from senator dianne feinstein and supporters of gun reform and vice president biden made an appearance with mayor michael bloomberg deman
is as much a priority as actual legislation. in these days no one is playing the game better than rand paul whose top priority seems to be positioning himself for 2016. in a speech in the hispanic chamber of commerce paul put him squarely in the middle of the debate. >> immigration will not occur until conservative republicans like myself become part of the solution. that's why i'm here today to begin that conversation and to be part of the solution. i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> michael: okay, sounds like he wants to find a way for undocumented immigrants to become citizens, well, not so fast. afterwards paul backpedaled saying while he wants to allow undocumented immigrants to stay he didn't want to pass citizenship. he said candidate we just have reform and then refer to it? wow, great way to say. representative yarmoth. what is happening with your fellow kentuckian rand paul, is this coming down to a path to citizenship?
, the winner of the cpac straw poll was a member of the paul family. rand paul was on top with 25% of the vote, his father, ron paul, won the cpac straw poll in 2010 and 2011. senator marco rubio placed second with 23%, and single digits support went to rick santorum, chris christie, paul ryan, scott walker, ben cars on, ted cruz, bobby jindal and sarah palin. joining us now, nbc analyst and mccain senior adviser, steve schmidt, analyst and obama re-election campaign adviser robert gibbs and huffington post editorial director howard fineman. robert gibbs, this is your debut performance on the last word. we have a motto that's very republican. it is not what you say but how you say it. keep that in mind. >> i have to say that lead in provides an exceedingly low bar for which i can roll right over. you know, chairman priebus may have cued it perfectly. >> months later, he figured it out. >> might have spent less paper figuring out the two or three things they did right in 2012 rather than all of what they did wrong. i think they have a herculian task on their shoulders because it isn't about how
of paul line situation where even though it's going to be in the bill, i wonder where the bill is going to get 60% and jam the action in the house. it's got to action or the house won't act. >> chris, the problem with the house majority, the republican majority is that, first of all, it's highly difficult to move those right wingers. they are all from safe districts. and so it is difficult to put pressure on them. i do think, however, it would be possible to embarrass john boehner into at least staging a vote. i remember president obama in his state of the union speech, don't the parents of newtown deserve a vote? don't the children of newtown deserve a vote? so let's at least force the house into an up and down vote on this bill. >> sam, will that work, that kind of an appeal? >> yes, it will work because a number of house republicans who ran in 2010, including some in pennsylvania, obviously representative griffin from staten island and representative peter king as well from new york. >> delaware county. >> exactly. >> they have to be careful. >> they do have to be careful. they have
, rand paul and ted cruz. and at cpac, hinting at a possible run at the white house, i'll ask him about that more, dr. ben carson and the 2013 straw poll is in and with 25% of the vote, kentucky senator rand paul was victorious. and attendees were not only likely impress heed by his remarks on friday, but by his impressive filibuster remarks this month. and senator marco rubio came in a close second. 23%. and former pennsylvania senator rick santorum rounded out the top three. chris christie, governor of new jersey had 7% and former vice-president nominee and wisconsin congressman paul ryan with 6%. here with the reaction the results and the man who came out on top, kentucky senator rand paul. senator, how are you? >> very good, good to be with you, sean. >> sean: does that mean you're running? >> i can tell it you it was invigorating and it was exciting probably 2000 young kids in the audience and standing and chanting and if you want to find some energy for the conservative movement, you see it it there. at cpac, it's one of the biggest convocations of young people you'll see all year
but we don't talk about it because cbo didn't mention it in the score. that's the great trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is alway
proponent of spending. nobel prize winning economist paul krugman. then, the race for space. is america losing? china is building its own space station and the u.s. has to rely on russia to send our astronauts up to the stars. what is going on? >>> and the exploding middle class. in more than seven years it will triple in size to almost 2 billion people. it will change the world. we'll talk about how. >>> but, first, here's my take. those of you who follow the show reg lerly know i have long argued that cutting government spending in the midst of a weak recovery is not a path towards growth. but i have also argued that america does have a debt and deficit problem and we need to take it very seriously. the fact is, the vast majority of our debt problems relate to the costs of health care in america. now that the debate over obama care is over, we should start thinking about how to get america's health care costs under control. as it turns out, two new works, a book and a magazine cover story provide some very useful ways to think about it. the central debate between democrats and republi
out there. paul ryan thinks, understandably because it is his plan, thinks it is the best one. >> the goal the republican majority is to get us on a path to balanced budget to put the debt crisis out and borrow time with the bond markets. yes, i believe the president won't pass our budget into law but let's get a down payment and get a good start on the problem. that to me a constructive bipartisan engagement can accomplish. bill: with that as a baseline kelly wright live at the white house this morning a lot of talk about a grand bargain, is that being revived, kelly? >> reporter: seems to be the case right now, bill, but reality while people are hoping for it including house speaker john boehner he is not very optimistic at all that democrats and republicans can achieve a grand bargain on the nation's budget deal. having said that, you will recall that the president did launch a major charm offensive, reaching out to republicans and democrats to find some common ground, in getting america's fiscal house in order. but some republicans remain skeptical about the president's si
in the family. >> bill: yeah, and then they took their straw poll. this year rand paul won but barely, we got 25% of the vote. marco rubio 24%. and chris christie got 7% of the vote. what a bunch of losers. >> when you look at that list rand paul is one of the most extreme name on the list. but that's the crowd. that's the crowd. >> bill: yeah, far, far too much at attention to cpac. we're going to be talking to the public advocate for the city of new york later this hour. next hour the representative from the seere area club, and cindy will help us through our brackets. and bob portman creating a lot of buzz when he has a leading republican did a big flip flop on marriage equality. but first -- >> announcer: this is the "full court press." >> march madness now underway. the men's bracket is sweat games starting this thursday. noticeably absent from this year's bracket is last year's winner. >> bill: i'm working on my bracket now. >> bill: here it is. okay. do i have to fill this out before she gets here. >> no, you have time. she might be able to help you. >> bill:er don't nee
afternoon. the house republicans have passed another pointless paul ryan budget, about to curbing gun violence, they are virtually silent. >>> those who adhere to the ideology of rejecting israel's right to exist, they might as well reject the earth beneath them or the sky above, because israel is not going anywhere. >> think about newtown. think about newtown. >> they should do a real background check on everyone. >>> congress just has to get some courage. >> i'm really ashamed to see that congress doesn't have the guts to stand up and make a change. >> it's time for the political establishment to show the courage your daughter showed. >> this is part of the lively debate that we talked about. >>> friendship photo ops. >> i have to say we arranged for that, because it made me feel at home. i wouldn't feel comfortable if i didn't have at least one heckler. >>> there are critical conversations going on today about this country's foreign policy, the direction of its economy, and the security of it is citizens. the president is in israel, where he delivered a major speech calling again f
was being vetted as a possible running mate for mitt romney. he said it had no impact in choosing paul ryan over-partman. second, why is it important to have firsthand experience to do the right thing? is it an existential experience necessary to have existential consent? >> i think senator portman made some pretty big inroads last week, but i think it's about being decent, that nobody deserved to have their decency diminished or people don't deserve to be disrespected. he stopped short of endorsing his position. here's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. churches do change. >> hillary clinton showed her support in this video. >> like so many others, my personal views have been shaped over time by people i have known and loved, by my experience representing our nation on the world's stage. my devotion to human rights, and the guiding principle
and the looming debt crisis. here is john boehner and paul ryan just this weekend. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. >> america is still a step ahead of european and japan. partly because of our resilient economy and our world currency status. >> michael: there you have it. but it turns out americans saw right through it. a poll out today from the hill shows while americans might be sympathetic to republican's ideas about lowering taxes they still trust the president to handle the economy. 65% said u.s. budget deficit should be reduced by cutting spending. but 35% said they trust the democrats more. so to regain the public's trust they have done an autopsy of the 2012 campaign. the rorpt has a lot of style but not a lot of serious substance. in it the word messaging appears 77 times technology in there 42 times, and then there is the long list of things that got no mention at also. health care inequality and others. the plan also pointed to some other issues, and no bashing poor people at all. the plan says low-income americans are hardworking people who
said it had no impact in choosing paul ryan over portman. second, why is it necessary to have firsthand experience with a person or situation in order to figure out how to do the right thing? is an existential experience necessary to have existential position necessary for consent? >> i think senator portman made some pretty big inroads last week, but i think it's about being decent, and respect, people don't deserve to be disrespected. >> priebus stopped short of endorsing portman's position and obviously the rnc does not. here's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. and racial justice. churches do change. and their members as well. meanwhile, hillary clinton expressed her support of marriage equality in this advocacy video. >> i support it individually and as a matter of policy and law. like so many others, my personal views have been shap
a government shutdown, we update the short- and long-term budget battles. >> sreenivasan: paul solman looks at free trade through the eyes of a classic american brand, getting wet in the global market. >> i know that every surfboard that comes into america comes in duty free. and when i sell a surfboard to australia, japan, europe, its a 20% to 25% duty that they have to pay to get mine. >> brown: we continue our series on how broadband technoly is changing our lives. tonight, a look at chattanooga, tennessee-- home of the nation's fastest internet connections. >> sreenivasan: and, spencer michaels has the story of photo journalists who risked their lives to tell the stories of iraqis in the early days of the war. >> as photographers, we're always looking for ways to communicate the urgency of horrible drama in these situations. >> brown: that's all ahead. on tonight's "newshour." >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: ♪ ♪ moving our economy for 160 years. bnsf, the engine that connects us. >> and by the alfred p. sloan foundation. supporting science, technology, a
that go into some of the parties that the republican party has. you could have rand paul and senator cruz, other senator, luminaries talk about who's not with the party. and sending field reps there to work for weeks but they have to have policies that will be responsive, as well as the ground game, net game and money game. >> along with policies there's a communication thereof. and jackie, the first question to the rnc chair this morning was is this a communications problem? or a problem with policies of the republican party? and here's what he said. >> i think our policies are sound. but i think that, many ways, the way that we communicate can be a real problem. it's not about altering our principles. i think it's about the way we communicate and the way we welcome people into our party. >> welcoming and communicating. is that an accurate assessment here do you think? >> well, i think that one thing is important to say, and you illustrated it a little bit in those clips. the rnc has this plan out there now, you do have some people, a lot of people in the republican party that don't nece
guys with me. the most important, ask paul cunningham, the sheriff cunningham to come up and give an update on the deputy injured in the shooting yesterday. thank you, sheriff walker. and like the sheriff said my name is paul cunningham, i am the sheriff in montague county. our officer injured yesterday in the traffic stop is doing great. i talked to his mom and dad this morning, he was sitting up in bed and talking, so that's a great thing. >> i know most of the media outlets have shown a picture of the suspect from yesterday and from our standpoint here we will release his name and say that evan spencer ebel, e-b-e-l, i believe most of you have that is our confirmed suspect and there was talk yesterday he was on life support, he's been pronounced deceased and that is our suspect. we will release through email shortly a photo if you don't have that, you can request it from our office, i believe most of you probably already have that. within the last 24 hours after identifying the-- identifying the suspect positively was the county medical examiner's office and did that through fi
flat. nobody got it. >> two wig winners, rand paul and won the straw poll going away and receiving with his speech and marco rubio did really well. i think you see chris christie sitting there with 7% -- >> who? >> chris christie. >> he was not only excluded, he was insulted there by some extreme voice. >> insult chris christie, you only make him stronger. >> i know. ron, chris christie couldn't have had it any better. first of all, he didn't have to go to cpac and, secondly, he was on everybody's mind at cpac and, third, he fred ahead from the vice presidential nominee in the polling. all in all a big success. i would say the three big winners, rand paul and marco rubio and the guy who wasn't there, chris christie. >> i agree. the democratic party is always the worst three days of the year for the republican party when you have all of these whacko birds on the fringe fighting with each other. those are the three winners, i agree. chris christie is setting -- a nice position to be the one guy come out incredibly and a good place to be. i think jeb bush, mark is right. he fell flat
the argument for invading in the first place, that was also advanced this week by paul wolfowits' old boss, donald rumsfeld. he tweeted on the morning of the anniversary, quote, ten years ago began the long, difficult work of liberating iraqis, all who played a role in history, deserve our respect and appreciation. yes, remember that war of iraqi liberation that we were asked to sign up for as a country? you don't remember that? it's because that's not what they sold us. that's not what they told us that war was for. they're retroactively defining it that way. this is richard pearl, one of the neo cons pushing the discredited evidence of weapons of mass destruction and nuclear and biological weapons plans. he reemerged to share this bit of self-reflection. >> ten years later, nearly 5,000 american troops dead, thousands more with wounds, hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or wounded. even though it has been ten years since the war was sold to the american public, the folks who did the selling, you know what, they did it all on tape, and the tape still exists. and now the people involved
to earth. but the house budget chairman paul ryan pushes ahead with his plan to balance the nation's books with major spending cuts. he'll join us live this hour. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room. . >>> it may be president obama's first official visit to israel but all eyes right now are on syria. the president says he's trying to find out if the damascus regime has crossed a u.s. red line by using chemical weapons against syrians. >> we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened. we know that there are those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons. once we establi the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. >> strong words from the president. let's go straight to cnn's john king. he's on the scene trav
: next, surf's up for "newshour" economics correspondent paul solman. his subject tonight: how the monster waves of international trade and globalization threaten-- yes-- the surfboard industry here in the u.s. it's part of paul's on-going reporting "making sense of financial news." >> that's steve and barrie boehne, they're the leading force in tandem. look at the grace. >> reporter: now what, you may ask, could a surfing star of the 1970s have to do with economics in 2013? >> isn't that great! >> reporter: well, steve boehne's life in the surf, which began at age 12 here in dana point, california, has involved shredding the waves, since 1958, on boards of his own invention. he's the founder and still maker and seller of legendary high end infinity surfboards. >> paul, you can use my board any time. >> reporter: even if his heavy lifting days are over. isn't this kind of a large surfboard? >> yeah, this is bigger than normal. it's a standup surfboard. it's become popular in the last five years. and a lot of the older guys really embraced it at first, because it's a little bit
with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states enabling small businesses to afford to office health insurance to their employees. and here is michele bac
to speed on american. senator rand paul. >> i think the legislature is about ten years behind the public. i've introduced amendments to quit sending money t and build bridges here in the united states rather than in egypt. 90% of the people agree with me 80% of my senate disagree with me. bill: do you agree with rand paul on that? >> it's a little more complicated than that. he is correct that the senate is not as responsive to the will of the american people as it should be. for example it continues to spend too much, another point that senator paul has made. on the other hand people in political office need to be leaders as well and they need to explain why, for example, we send military assistance to egypt. we want the egyptian military to you supportive of u.s. policy. when they buy american equipment, when they receive our help they tend to be more supportive of our position. the egypt leader is trying to play both side. if the united states withdrew awful its assistance i'm not sure he wouldn't flip over to the wrong side. it's more complicated than saying we shouldn't send aid to cou
these days. they're going to go with it, they're going to make it work. and for paul ryan to be fighting that battle all over again -- after it was sort of was at the core of the 2012 election, some might argue it's what helped the president win re-election. they're going to argue that again? why? and the president will, will fight to defend medicare. he will fight to defend medicaid. because they're crucial to obama care. now james said i don't know why he's cutting medicare. there are going to be some strategic cuts around the borders. but the president is not going to give up on medicare and he's not going to give up on medicaid. and that was really what the 2012 election in terms of domestic policy was really all about. >> james, is this terrible strategy for the republican party in the long-term? >> i cannot believe that it's four and a half months after the election and they haven't sort of public strategic debate among each other and they're all sort of out there attacking each other. i've been around politics for a long time and a lot of people on this panel, i've been through a
. politico has this new article about the influence of a couple younger guys. marco rubio, rand paul, and how they're taking the reins. it's rubio and paul dominating the show. this wing of the party has its own version of the republican national committee, the heritage foundation. the aggressive, wealthy brothers and the club for growth. together these groups hold the cards when it comes to the most important political issues facing the party. do that i? >> no, i don't agree with that. they certainly old a good deal of sway, but our challenge at main street and other people like us in terms of wanting to restore the governing wing of the party recognize, again, they're an important piece of the puzzle, but if they become the puzzle, i mean, i heard you before the break talking about senator mccaskill's book. i'm interested to read it because i think she spent $2 million promoting the candidacy of representative akin because she knew he may have been one of the only two people in missouri that she could have beaten last year. >> well, don't you think he beat himself with his comments? i mean,
with the gop does at their jobs at my job. i feel sorry for them. most isorry about granted paul. i am --rand paul. and i am an old time lutheran. is not to be trusted. it is important to know exactly the religion of our candidates. there is nothing more important. host: she is gone. father is apaul's christian and religious man. the republican party is going through rebuilding and redesign and try to figure out what they will do and rand paul could be a big part of that. he had a filibuster on the floor and i'm sure we will be hearing his name more in the future. host: mechanicsville, va., go ahead. caller: i have a question -- when you are debating about the budget, why do they continue to put amendments in there that have absolutely nothing to do with - the budget. ? guest: that the great question. it's because they can. there is a role in the senate that says they can attach strings to the budget and no one can stop them. that the opportunity senators have, they took it. mideast policy got involved and to guns and so they did whatever they wanted to do. that was on full display. not cover
. make them get up there like rand paul did. it will be a difference if they really had to do it. so if you accept the filibuster then, of course, you accept defeat. you know, from the very, very beginning. and as far as the assault weapons ban, harry reid again, ahead of time, says, oh you know, it's a loser. >> dianne has worked so hard on this going back to the day she found the mayor dead in his office, had been killed. how strongly she feels about that. i know that. but right now, her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. >> that's not 60. >> bill: damn it, here is what really burns me about this. okay? first of all, notice, it's not the assault weapons ban that's brought up for a vote and loses. we can expect that maybe. we can expect that. it's not that the republicans shoot it down. we certainly would expect that. and we wouldn't like it. but we would know how it happened. what harry reid is saying, we are not even going to allow a vote. we are not even going to bring it up for a vote. but, you know, to mean,
